Where does this board stand re: Alain Ducasse?

I made a snarky comment about Ducasse on the Ontario board(on a side issue, not discussing Ducasse directly of course), and was surprised to hear a strong reaction from a fellow CHer, who is a well seasoned foodie of many a Michelin star across the globe.

I have personally only been to Jules Verne and thought the food was rather boring and overpriced(I know you are paying for the location, but still, not for THAT food.). Everything else I have read here about Ducasse has not led me to reconsider this negative judgment.

But now I am thinking that maybe I am missing something here? anyone want to speak out in defence of this International Brand? or maybe this question is too general and you need to look at every individual location and each may fare differently? if so, anywhere you would suggest as particularly good?
